Mrs. Betty Burnheimer has lived in her modest, little, but nice, home for over fifty years. The little house sits on  a corner lot which, apparently, is composed of very fertile soil, that has supported bountiful harvests of vegetables since Mrs. Burnheimer has put out garden over the fifty years of residence.
“It has always been a good garden, even without any rain,” she shared. Other folks in the area claim that “Betty’s garden was always one of the best gardens in town” , and that when she was younger, the garden was about ten times bigger than it is now., indicating the area reached across a big expanse of what is now a pretty lawn, reaching to a neighbor’s house.
